Extra Fabric = French Memo Boards!

In an effort to redecorate Alli's room on a budget, I decided to make her a french memo board with some scrap fabric. So it all started with this one . . .
. . . then Elijah decided he wanted one, too . . . . . . and then I decided my craft area could use a memo board, and I had this extra fabric from a handbag that I LOVE, so I made #3 . . .
. . . only to find that I still had enough of this fabric to make #4 for downstairs.
Now every bedroom has one, as well as the hallway by the kitchen. I think this should be enough for now . . .
